September 10, 2016 - Buddy raced to his NINTH STRAIGHT VICTORY in a row at Kern County Raceway Park!
The sixteen year old kid continued his winning season by starting out the night earning yet another fast qualifying honor. He passed the dice roll honors to his crew member Joel, who rolled a five for the forty lap main invert. Buddy started on the third row inside and within two laps he found himself in the lead!
There were two cautions bringing the field together. But with lighting fast shifting restarts he was able to inch his way into the lead once again. The last caution came on lap 36, he took the lead out of turn two and never looked back.
A celebration followed in Raymond's Trophy Victory Lane with Buddy pausing to honor the 911 victims and their families. Even though Buddy was only a year old when the tragedy occurred, he has seen, and read of the horrific event that sad day. He can't imagine the heartache these families have gone through. He then thanked his crew for all of their hard work, his sponsors, and quoted " The car was really hooked up, Mike Keen really knows how to set up a race car and I can't thank him enough". And a big THANKS to the mystery person who bought his tires for the weekend!
Next Race: September 24, 2016 @ Kern County Raceway Park, Late Model Division.
